would keep the bush tax cuts in place. fewer than half knew that romney and not obama had promised to increase defense spending. only 23% were aware that payroll taxes had decreased during obama's term in office. only slightly more than half knew that paul ryan is the republican vice presidential nominee. the director of the annenberg center, kathleen hall jamieson, our master media decoder is back with us. welcome. >> thank you. >> so who's responsible for the widespread unawareness or ignorance that you report in your survey? is it the candidate, the media, or the voter? >> it's all three. and fortunately, we have the opportunity with presidential debates to do something that reliably increases knowledge. we've been studying presidential debates for a long time as a scholarly community. and to our surprise, we consistently find that those who watch debates, regardless of the level of knowledge they come in with, come out with more accurate knowledge as a general group. and they do this because those who haven't paid a great deal of attention have a lot to learn. those of us who'v
that president obama can't use it against him going forward. >> it was a good line he used with sean hannity. he probably was prepared to use it in the debate but he didn't get the chance because president obama didn't bring up the 47%. >>> president obama is back at a rally in wisconsin yesterday, the president sounded more like his supporters wanted him to sound during the debate as he mocked mitt romney. >> when i got on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney's been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. and yet, the fellow on the stage last night, who looked like mitt romney, said he did not know anything about that. >> a spirited president obama last night, somewhat different president than we saw at the debate a couple nights ago. the president hits two more battleground states today, virginia and ohio. >> some people are wondering where was president obama, right? it was a different president obama as well. >> i think
: in control, assertive, presidential. while barack obama kept his eyes and his energy low. >> it's very rare that stylistically there's such a clear triumph of one side over the other. >> reporter: a rally in denver, the president admitted he got surprised. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> reporter: he charged romney changed his stance on taxes and spending. >> but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> reporter: some felt mr. obama owed them a better debate. >> he looked like he was tired, drained. >> i think he didn't have the practice. >> you more worried obama might lose now? >> well, no, not really. >> reporter: obama strategists hint the boss learned a lesson. >> he'll review it and if he wants to make some changes in the next debate, he'll do so. >> reporter: romney strategists claim all that changed about their guy was the audience. >> i think people saw him for the first time, a lot of people, not in a 30-second attack ad or 12-second snippet on the news. but got to hear him directly. >> r
the direction of the debate, aggressively pushing president obama on the economy, job creation, and health care. we're going to talk to top advisers about how their candidates faired just ahead. we're also going to talk with chris matthews who had very strong feelings about the debate. but we want to begin with chuck todd, chief white house correspondent in denver this morning. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning, savannah. look, this may have been the most substantive debate in the television era. and mitt romney dealt with it as if his campaign depended on it while a subdued president obama let romney dictate the terms of the debate. not exactly the gift the president was looking for on his 20th wedding anniversary. >> and so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> reporter: from the very beginning, mitt romney displayed a confident and commanding presence on stage, almost one-upping the president from the start. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on
